VK2100 ATEN Control Box

The ATEN Control System, incorporating the VK2100 (ATEN Control Box), the VK6000 (ATEN Configurator) and the ATEN Control System App is a standard Ethernet-based management system that connects all the hardware devices in a room or large facility to provide centralized control directly and effortlessly via a mobile device and tablet computer. The VK2100 works as the main controller that provides connectivity to all the hardware devices found in a room. After connecting the hardware, the VK6000 software provides setup of the device configuration and controls in 4 easy steps. The ATEN Control System App then connects you to the VK2100 from any iOS, Android or Windows mobile device / tablet computer which empowers you with mobility to control all the hardware devices, in different rooms, whenever and however you like.

The VK2100 easily deploys into an existing installation and integrates seamlessly with ATEN VanCryst pro-A/V products and nearly any other hardware device found in a room, including A/V equipment, lighting, conference systems, air conditioning, motion sensors, power switches and many more. The VK2100 serves as the central platform where hardware devices are connected – to be monitored, managed and controlled directly via a tailor-made GUI from any iOS, Android or Windows mobile device.

The VK6000 software facilitates a quick setup of the hardware devices and controls in 4 easy steps via an intuitive GUI. The VK6000 walks you through configuring the hardware, designing the interface, and uploading viewer profiles to the VK2100. To provide control of the hardware devices, Viewer Profiles are imported via the ATEN Control System APP from any iOS, Android or Windows mobile device. Through an Ethernet connection, the ATEN Control System App enables you to import and update viewer profiles from the VK2100 via a point-n-tap user interface. Each viewer profile provides a customized control GUI that grants you quick access to target and control hardware devices. Use of any profile is protected with password authentication to ensure system access.

The ATEN Control System is perfectly applicable in meeting rooms, conference centers, boardrooms, classrooms or any room that requires central control of a variety of hardware devices through a streamlined management system with optimum efficiency and performance.
